John Hollis

Hollis spent 39 years as a sportwriter. He is one of the few privileged to have a one-on-one interview with Babe Ruth only weeks before The Bambino succumbed to cancer. Hollis served as Quartermaster Third Class/Steersman on the U.S.S. Harris in World War II, which earned him Presidential Unit Citation. Hollis retired from sportswriting in 1985 to join the Houston Boxing Association as Publicist/Public Relations Director.
